Pushing the boundaries of children’s theatre “ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND” allows families to explore Wonderland up close, in an immense multi-room set in the Vaults under Waterloo station. In this hour long show, children will play a part in controlling their own experience, as they search for Alice, who is missing in Wonderland. On entering Wonderland you will either ‘Eat me’ or ‘Drink Me’, which determines your unique path. Tumble with the Tweedle twins; follow the White Rabbit and take Tea with the Hatter at the Maddest Tea Party of all!
